Miata Aerodynamics

This is a website dedicated to Miata aerodynamics, endurance racing, and DIY. The name is a pun on Occam’s Razor, which I’ll paraphrase as “if you have many competing theories, choose the simplest.” For driving enjoyment, economy, and car racing, Miatas are the simplest solution. Thirty years after its introduction, this is still true.

There’s great content on Miata aerodynamics all over the net, but it’s not easy to find. And so part of the mission is to collate existing Miata aero content, as well as provide new data to fill existing knowledge gaps (roofline shape, for example). The website menus are organized like this:

  • Test Results – Data and conclusions from the testing I did at Watkins Glen.
  • Blog – Most of my content is published to the blog, but this is becoming a mess, and so I’ve categorized posts into other menus as well.
  • Articles – Aerodynamic theory, as it pertains to Miatas.
  • DIY– Miata projects for the home builder.

This is an intellectual pursuit, not a business venture. I don’t sell anything. If you feel this information is helpful and you want to kick some back, I take donations. If you want to do these kinds of tests for your own car, contact Man & Machine Consulting.
